Cat Weak Legs, Blood clot?? Help

  1. #16

    Update: Our cat is back! Took her to the vet, who cleared her but prescribed her a limiting to a bed room and then to gradually introduce her to the rest of the house, keeping activities to a minimum a few days a time. She still stretches her back legs, but vary sparingly. She can jump with easy and last night she had a spurt of energy and decided to sprint around the bedroom. Also got her some pet steps to get into our bed to prevent her from making such huge jumps. Good to have her back! No surgery needed!

    Recovery Update:

    Note for anyone who is reading this who is dealing with a similar situation. Cats don't know they have to take it easy in recovery. Our cat is supposed to take it easy on her back. However, this is easier said than done. She's constantly jumping up on things and, more dangerously, jumping off big things like our bed (even though we got her steps), the dresser (she isn't supposed to be on it anyways, but cats are cats), and so forth. We are trying our best to limit her on things she isn't supposed to get on, but she's a cat. Cats do as they please. As far as we can see, she is handling everything fine as if she was normal, but we keep worrying she'll hurt herself again, as we know a herniated disc can be very serious, and we saw how bad she was at her worst. It feels like anything can happen to put her back into injury mode. We are doing our best.

    I'm sure you are, cats are not the easiest things to keep confined, we just do what we have to do. But I would still suggest you take her for at least one acupuncture treatment. You'd be surprised how well they do after a treatment, they are very relaxed and really don't seem to mind the needles. And while she is there they will check to make sure nothing is out of place and if it is a simple adjustment may fix her right up.

    Sounds like you're doing the best you can Nathan, hope your cat doesn't get hurt. Cats are hard to keep quiet or stop from jumping up and down on things, that's for sure. Hugs for your girl!

    Thanks for the update on Daisy! Are you able to move the dresser out of the bedroom to make things less tempting? It's great you have steps for her and maybe if you put a treat on each step she'll start using them. Hope it all works out
